The timber façade of sanitation block No. 3 on the Grubhof site is a striking contrast between the primitiveness of nature and modernity. A long way from the log cabin look, the building blends harmoniously into the landscape, yet the shape and colour provide a lively contrast.
The large format natural stone finish tiles are easy to clean, durable and have a high-quality finish.
Sealing the many wall and floor joints in the new sanitary facilities, such as those here in the dishwashing room, requires careful work and reliable materials. Self-adhesive sealing strips such as different types of PCI Pecitape accelerate the process and remain water-tight.
Each one of the extra-large family bathrooms is equipped with a toilet, a generous shower, wash basins and storage space. Sliding doors provide privacy on the toilet or the shower when required.
Raw materials such as wood, stone, and fair-faced concrete conjure up fond memories of camping while providing maximum comfort at the height of the season.

The Grubhof campsite in the middle of St. Martin bei Lofer reflects the characteristics of the region: closeness to nature, tradition and warm hospitality. Since 2013, the new 5-star sanitation facility has increased the level of comfort of the approximately twelve-acre campsite by taking the load off the existing sanitary facilities during the high season and shortening the paths between the pitches and wash facilities the whole year round. The new complex comprises seven family bathrooms, each ten metres square. All of them are equipped with a toilet, a generous shower, wash basins and storage space. The high frequency of use of 1,200 campsite visitors per day puts considerable pressure on the design and execution of the wet rooms. The installed coverings therefore have to look the part, have suitable non-slip properties and be easy to clean on a daily basis. A total of 350 square metres of flooring and150 square meters of wall were covered with large-format porcelain stoneware tiles. Below the surface of the beautiful tiles and panels, high quality products manufactured by PCI Augsburg ensure the structure of the building is suitably water resistant. While effectively protecting against the demanding humid conditions, the innovative ingredients also introduce a degree of flexibility into the bond. In accordance with ÖNorm B 2207, wall surfaces that are heavily affected by moisture, such as those in sanitary facilities, are classified as stress class W3, and the corresponding floor areas as stress class W4. The substrate must therefore be suitably protected against moisture penetration. Such waterproofing posed a real challenge for the installers because the tiling had to be applied to a very fresh yet still shrinking screed. In order to protect the subsequent tile skin from damage, a layer of PCI Seccoral 2K Rapid fast-setting waterproof slurry was applied over the primer. The static separation of the insulation on the sometimes very long corridors with equally long separation joints is another demanding task. The individual inlets and outlets, and the floor-to-wall connections were sealed to the waterproofing with various sealing strips and collars, while the elastic joints were created using silicone joint sealant. Thanks to the effective combination of the team and the materials, it didn't take long to construct the new sanitation block No. 3 and have it up running in time for the new season.
